Take it away Cindy……..
I am so happy to be guest posting at The Thrifty Groove, I follow this blog regularly. I’d like to thank Diann for the opportunity.
For this, my first guest post, I thought it would be a good idea to show you a very thrifty project I did over the weekend to an extra chair that is in our dining room. During the revamp I added an applique to the back to give it an elegant flair; I think it is a nice touch, as well as change the color and recover the seat.
This chair used to be yellow/gold as you can see in the before picture and I felt it needed a change. I used Annie Sloan paint in a new color they came out with named Coco, I love the color.
I had this script French fabric in my pile of fabrics and thought this would add an elegant touch to the rest of the room. After the painting, I waxed the chair with the clear wax and then the dark wax. The wax application really does make a difference; it gives the chair dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and will stop and visit me at www.clochesandlavender.com and see all the neat projects I have done over the years in my home.
